D for the same reason, and by the way, "have to know" and "would have to know" are both appropriate

A. have to know a great deal more than now about the social and economic => have to know is wrong here
B. have to know a great deal more than they do now about the social and economical => have to know is wrong here
C. would have to know a great deal more than they do now about the social and economical => "they" is wordy
D. would have to know a great deal more than they do now about the social and economic => not ||
E. would have to know a great deal more than now about the social and economical

My Answer : E

Though at first i felt that "economical" changes meaning ;) and had select D
